State Of Mind

Published: March 2011

Depression is a state of mind
but remember my dear
it is a crime
to cut the throat of a beloved soul
and suck the life from within the hole
cross out the lies that left your lips
and drink the blood with thirsty sips
snap her bones into shattered glass
hold your breath until the screaming pass
shout her name from miles away
he doesn't move he doesn't stay.

Rip the wound with foolish tears
and cover the scar with dreaded fears
taste the pain on your own bandaged tongue
and drip the tears into her precious lungs
shoot the smile from her face
and bring her to a forbidden place
screaming, she runs away
he doesn't move he doesn't stay.

I once had a online friend who was very suicidal. He hated life and stuff. It was super hard for me to cope around him. I fell in love with him...why? What was there to love? But I did anyway. The day I went to confess my love, his account was deactivated on Facebook, and he left a goodbye note. I cried for weeks on end, but then I saw him again online today. I tried to talk, but I couldn't. He didn't remember me. I can't confess my love because he doesn't know me.

Hi, my name is Becca, and I am a cutter. I was raped when I was 5 til I was in 5th grade. It's been hard because it was my dad. I was abused as well. My life is hard, but I am a survivor and I made it.

Hi, my name is Joseph Sheets. I am 17 years old, I'm in a residential program. I've been here for almost 2 years. Almost every day I struggle with something related to depression, whether it's trying to commit suicide, cutting myself, etc. My life is really rough.
